Recovery and mobility are essential, not just on training and competition days!
Take time out for those small moments of time throughout the day to take advantage of the opportunity to get in some regeneration work in the form of foam rollers, bands, massage guns, etc.
Here are some tips:
- Find an area of focus like lower back, shoulders, hips, etc and focus on that. It doesn’t have to be total body focus every time.
- Use what’s at your disposal. Everyone doesn’t have a massage gun, and items like bands and lacrosse balls are more readily available.
- Don’t count out ‘wall mobility’. You can really target areas by standing and using the wall as leverage as you roll against a lax ball.
- Be creative and remember that everyone’s mobility and regeneration techniques are different!
